Hi,
I se no reason whatsoever to remove the activated carbon. The bioballs, rings and carbon are as good a combination as you'll find. I agree that removing the floss will help your flow.

Cheers,

Wouldn't use carbon my self it doesn't take long to get exhausted I'd rather have more bio filtration than use that, I don't like bio balls ever prefer to use something porous with a larger surface area. In my eheim pro 3e 2076 I have 2 trays of substrate pro and bio mech I think it's called in the bottom (looks like flat squares with a dent in the middle) and the sponges.

Not heard of substrate pro reducing flow myself suppose all media does to an extent but it being porus shouldn't b bad. Bio balls just have abit of a bad rep for not being that great
